Missing boat report in Caribbean turns out to be false alarm; all passengers safe

It turns out that a motorboat reported missing in the eastern Caribbean wasn't missing after all, officials said Monday.

All six passengers of a boat traveling from the island of Dominica are safe and accounted for. They turned up Monday at a police station in the French island of Martinique to say they were fine.

A police statement says the four men and two women left Dominica a day later then they originally planned because of the rough weather. They were originally due back Sunday and a coast guard search was launched when they didn't turn up.
